ANTIBES - FAMILY PROPERTY - 12 BEDROOMS - POOL - ANNEXES
Between the picturesque village of Biot and the town of Antibes with its accents and colors typical of Provence, this majestic Provençal-style country house sits on top of a hill planted with olive trees at the heart of a 74-acre park. Built by architect André Svetchine in the early 1960s with period materials (tiles, beams, terracotta floor tiles, plasterwork and stone fireplaces), the property seems like it has stood there forever. The various landscaped gardens surrounding the villa are interspersed with fountains and jets of water, providing the ideal setting for a stroll or a spot of meditation. The country house covers a surface area of approximately 11,840 sq ft. The ground floor is composed of a reception lounge opening out onto open and covered terraces facing East and West, a small lounge, a library, a dining room, a kitchen and pantry, and an en suite bedroom. On the second floor is a master suite with a bedroom, two bathrooms and 2 walk-in closets, 5 other en suite bedrooms, a linen closet, and two staff bedrooms. A night club has been fitted out on the garden level, 4 staff bedrooms, and a laundry room. The high-end facilities on this estate also include a 59x22 ft swimming pool with a pool house, an annex for guests or caretakers, 3 closed garages, and numerous parking spaces.
